Mudguards for 20"/451mm wheels?

Hi, anyone know where I can get mudguards for my Pacific Reach with the larger 20" size wheels, i.e. 451mm rims with 28-451 (20x1 1/8") tyres? The bike has the manufacturer's optional extra mudguards but they are quite short and don't really give a lot of protection. I am in the UK

EDIT: for folks on the other side of the pond I mean fenders when I say 'mudguards'

Planet Bike has fenders in every size range. Quite often the 406 fenders will fit if you move the mounting hardware a bit.

Thanks, so you have experience of using 406mm mudguards with 451mm wheels? I was kind of assuming they would not work as the curve is so much tighter, but if they do work I can source 406 ones in the UK. Unfortunately not from local shops though so cannot just go and try a set for size.

The PB fenders are relatively flexible. The Raleigh 20's used the same fenders for the 406 and the 451 wheels and those are chrome plated steel. The aesthetics may be a bit off, but at least you have fenders and stay dry.
